We are hitting the big D-Land! It is the year of a million dreams. But in order to create that dream for ourselves, there’s some preparation. Here are a few things to know before you plan or prepare your next Disneyland Trip.

Autograph Book: My cute niece Amy (who is my age) goes to Disneyland all the time with her hubby and kids. They gave us an autograph book to start out our trip. We are set to hit the Characters up for their John Hancock on every page. Then that charater’s picture will be going on the opposite page. I love it. My kids really think that these cute characters are real. It is just too much fun.

Character Call: This is so fun. I planned to have a Character from Disneyland call my kids the day before we leave. It is Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy’s voices in a recorded message to my kids. They say they are so excited for them to come and visit and will see them soon. Sooo Great!!

Matching Shirts: My sisters family went to Disneyland and there are sooo many of them. So they all wore Bright Green shirts. It was great, they could always find or spot one another. There are just 4 in my little family, but I think we will find some good matching shirts.

Child Leash: It sounds cruel, but in a place like Disneyland, I don’t want to lose my little toddler. She will most likely travel in her stroller, but this is a great way for me to feel safe with all those people.
